When we announced our Diabetes Awareness Charity Special, we asked you to share your stories of living with diabetes, and health in general, and how Munzee has helped you. We’ve gotten a handful of stories that we will be sharing, and we hope these encourage you to share yours. These stories have been edited to exclude personal information unless explicitly stated.
I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes after my invalid husband passed away. Not liking the thought of taking tablets for the rest of my life, I had to do something about it. I knew about Munzee, but I hadn’t participated in it, so tentatively I made a start.
Well 6 months after diagnosis, I was off the tablets, eating better and had ‘normal’ blood sugar levels. Lots of walking, travelling, meeting new people and playing the game has maintained that level, to the point where a specialist said he didn’t believe I was diabetic!
So thank you, Munzee, for the health benefits and long may the game continue.
